Drogba Lost Passion for the Game

Posted on December 31, 2008

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba admits he has lost some of the passion he had for football this season.

“This summer, I no longer had a head for football, I’d completely lost the fire” he told France Football magazine.

“I felt completely extinguished. For the first time in my career, I’d lost the passion for football. I was lost.”

The Ivory Coast international says he also understands why team-mate Nicolas Anelka has been prefered to start ahead of him in recently.”For the moment, I can only keep quiet,” he added.

“It is not because I have been here for more than four years that I have a right to make demands to be in the starting line-up.

“At the moment, there’s a guy who is hot and racking up goals. I must wait my turn.”

However, the 30-year-old Drogba also feels that manager Luiz Felipe Scolari should combine him with Anelka in attack more often.

“I have always said that I was happy that Nicolas came to Chelsea but I still cannot understand why managers are afraid to put us together,” said Drogba.
